Model_H_over_Huffman1

1914-1915 Wright Models H & HS -- These two aircraft were very similar to the Model F, but the fuselage was streamlined so that it tapered back to the tail. The HS had a short wingspan, just 32 feet (9.75 meters) to give it more speed and increased rate of climb. The H had longer wings for an increased payload. This was the last Wright "pusher" and the last with a double rudder. The Wright Model HS at Simms Station. Note the wheel spokes have been covered with plates. This decreased drag. With its long wings, the Model H could carry over 1000 lbs (454 kg).
